Studio 1 – Proposal for rejuvenating rio Besos

Design Group : Viraat Kumar, Xiomara Armijo
The besos is a channelized and a neglected stream which quietly flows through barcelona. Our
design initiative is to rejuvenate and replenish the river through passive techniques. The
river snakes its way through the basin allowing vital sediments and minerals to deposit.
The use of bio remediation is a green technique to cleanse the soil, pollutants discharged
by industrial and residential units. The initiative extends to restore an eco system
of flora and fauna, involve the city dwellers and restore besos to its pristine glory.
